BUS IWDRK FOR W ALES. Sir John Puieeton will, however, probably be ibest rememlbered for his ardent devotion to the land of his birth. (For more than .forty years he was one of the best known Welshmen, and for at least a generation he occupied a position which was altogether unique among his compatriots in London. Hie iwas a Welsh Nationalist long before Nationalism became fashionable. Whether at home or abroad be gloried in his nationality. He had his heart and soul in every Welsn movement of a na- tional character, whether promoted in the Metropolis or in the Principality, and there is not an institut-ion. which has for its object the furtherance of Welsh literature and art and education in general which will not be dis- tinctly the poorer by Sir John's removal. His home in London was the rallying point for all promising young Welshmen of all shades of opinion. He took a been interest in the 'United Improvement Siocietv, which drew its members from all the Welsh churches and chapels in London. He had a leading share in the founding of more than one church to minis- ter to the needs of his ifetllow countrymen who migrated to London, and "t was probably to him more than to any other one man that the establishment of the impressive service now annually held at St. Paul's Cathedral on St. | David's Eve was due. (Sir John was an ardent and '^n-eroue supporter of the National Eis- teddfod, on whose platjtorm he often figured as president. He was also a vice-president of the 'Cymmrodorion (Society, and -chairman of the City of London Conservative Association. He was likewise for many years a vice-president of the United Kingdom Pilots Association, and on the occasion of the annual conference of the Association at Carnarvon in 1898 was presented with pieces of silver in recognition of his ser- vices to the Association, and especially ,JÃ his persistent advocacy of a more liberal scale of superannuation to pilots.
